Sheriff Moris E. Muhleman said all seven machines were "going at a merry clip" when the raiders walked in. The club is a social organization sponsored by the Tri-City Federation of Labor, an AFL affiliate. It is open only to union members arid their guests. Club manager Leonard A. Mason. 60, of Davenport, la., was charged with possessing gambling devices and released on his own recognizahce. No club patrons were seized. State's Attorney Bernard J.

Vernon have been improving and modernizing their homes, Darns and other buildings in the last few months, according to F. F. Stables, local lumber and building materials dealer and member of the Public Affairs Committee of the National Retail Lumber Dealers Association. * "In view of the importance of large crops to the defense program', the Federal government has placed no restrictions on farm building, except the credit regulations which apply to homes only, and the high level of farm incomes has permitted a large amount of construction," Mr Stables said. "Owing to the controls on housing and commercial construction, the supply of lumber and most other building materials is sufficient to meet all farm needs. "The defense agencies in Washington have refrained from limiting farm construction because of the proven fact that farm animals are healthier when housed in up- to-date, sanitary buildings and that losses are reduced when grain, hay and other crops are stored in sound, weatherproof structures. "Judging by the demand for materials, the last five years have seen the greatest period of farm building improvement ever experienced locally, together with the greatest increase in home comforts and conveniences on our farms."
